Also, I didn't realize the 1st bridge was wooden. Pictures of it look like metal.Both bridges were indeed metal as the photo indicates. Despite claims by some, no wooden bridge ever existed here.
I also remember taking a hike upstream and seeing stone bridge abutments in the gorge. I only recall one set of piers. Did I miss another set? If not, which bridge would they have belonged to?Piers from both bridges still exist on the gorge floor and up the banks. So also do the the abutments. On the west side a concrete abutment for the 2nd bridge is still plainly evident. The cut stone abutment from the first bridge however is somewhat hidden in the underbrush 40 or feet to the south.
